Narda Pitkethly


Narda Pitkethly, the founder of Nardagani, lived in Japan in mid-1980s and learned to read Japanese using the Hiragana system. Several years later, after returning to the United States, Narda had a daughter with reading challenges. In order to help her daughter and other challenged readers, Narda adapted Hiragana to English and developed the Nardagani Reading Program. Narda is committed to helping eradicate illiteracy worldwide and to teaching people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds to read.
